Well worth the hoops you have to jump through:

The compressor's especially good.

It involves installing a licensing manager that's a bit convoluted but it is worth it imo.

See what you mean about the hoops! It decided that I didnt want the Win version & told me I had ordered the Mac version, then told me I couldnt download it unless I logged in (again) and then entered my product number, which was supposed to be in the email confirming my account. The number in that email was rejected, which was when I decided to give up and add on to your post as a warning to others. Tried to use their contact us button and they want all the same registration/login information over again.

They may make decent plugins but they need a new webmaster.

It's probably the worst hoop jumping I've ever experienced for a plugin. I'm not sure I did the right thing in recommending it now. The product number was rejected a few times for me until I figured out where it wanted it (I think it was 'register' rather than 'activate' on their licenser?).

Well I finally got it installed. FFS! Even when I tried to enter the Product number it told me it was incorrect several times till I realised that when pasted, the installer was adding a space at the beginning of the product number which I had to delete before uit recognised it! Too worn out to try it, I think I am just going to emty out all those emails and uninstall the damn thing.
Totally NOT recommended. Also, one of the slowest downloads I have ever seen!
Never even got remotely close to 1mb on my fibre broadband.

Default free gear

Audio Assault's the punch plugin is currently a time-limited freebie (Offer Valid until March 27th 8pm CST). I can't comment on how good it is as I haven't downloaded it yet, but going by their previous free offering (druminator) it might be worth a look.

https://www.audio-assault.com/thepun...eid=db451c3b01

And here's another great free one-knobber!

The developer says "Most of the effects have a "quality" setting. Leave it to the lowest value for realtime use or quick tests. Higher quality values can be up to 100 times slower (!), and usually do not run at realtime speed (there are only useful for off-line processing)."
If you attempt to change the quality setting REAPER crashes.

Nevertheless some of the FX are pretty good.
PT Octave Shifter produces a very stable shift without the tinny warbling you get in a lot of pitch shifters. (But we already have the excellent Cockos ReaPitch.)
PT STN separates the sound into Sinuses, Transients and Noise, and allows the level of each part to be adjusted....works well (similar to the 'voice of snow' plugin).
PT Smooth + Rough and PT Stable + Unstable are interesting.

Default Impressive Free Amp+Effects+Cabs Sim Plugin

I am a happy S-Gear user but I just ran across this free Amp Sim and was very impressed. This is now my "go to" recommendation for free/inexpensive Amp Sim plugs.

https://tonelib.net/gfx-overview/

(This was discussed over in the Linux forum, but I did not see it mentioned anywhere else. I also posted this on another "Free Plugins" Thread, but this thread looks more comprehensive.)

The tonelib suite isn't too bad, little fizzy, which I helped by placing airwindows hombre after it.
Am sure there are other tricks too.

Had an old DSK Indian DreamZ laying around and wondered if they made something else? seems like it.

"DSK Music Virtual Instruments are 100% free for private and commercial use."

They have "Pro" versions also but I can't speak about them, just found this out myself, so and, some might be 32bit, but hey..
